I really didn't feel like doing anything today, let alone bake. Because the only thing I felt like doing today (after coming back from the Saturday Market, cleaning all the fish I bought and preparing all the ingredients for my beef stew!) was to just lie back and watch tv. But as always, I gave in to the incessant pestering of my daughter, this time to use up the blueberries and apricots I had bought sometime back.
Of course I have made clafoutis before (once!) when I was studying in the UK. I know, I know. You must be sick and tired of the same old line, but in all honesty that was where I first learned how to bake; as I mentioned, out of necessity.
And into the kitchen I dashed, got all my baking things and ingredients and started to whip up the simplest clafoutis (I told you, baking then was out of necessity and it still is!). This recipe is so simple, any one can try it. Read on and you will understand why.
40g ground almond
2tbsp plain flour
100g soft brown sugar
250ml full fat milk (of course!)
Place the blueberries and sliced apricots into a flan dish (I used my trusted casserole dish which had been slightly greased!) Then, you just whizz everything else in a blender, pour mixture into the dish and bake in a 190C oven for twenty five minutes, until slightly brown and cooked. So, there! And in conjunction with clafoutis being a French dessert, I wish you bonne appetit!
